On 18th April IIT Madras conducted its first large scale Open Quiz. Students and professionals from Chennai, Bangalore and other cities took part in the quiz. I was one of the four quiz masters. More than 200 teams took part in the quiz. Some of the best quizzers in the country were out there in the finals competing against each other. Arul Mani and Anustup Datta's team came from Bangalore and stood second in the quiz. Dr. Navin Jayakumar who conducts the annual Landmark Quiz in Chennai was there with his team which included Avinash Mudaliar. Samanth Subramanian who has won almost all the quizzes held in IIT in the recent past came with his team QED and won again. I'll always carry very fond memories of that day, especially since my parents were there to see the finals. Enjoy all my questions here: Open Quiz.
